Grimes has revealed that she and Elon Musk have been asked to change the name of their newborn baby to comply with California state law.
The couple had their first child in early May, confirming the intention to call him, X Æ A-12.
•X, the unknown variable ⚔️
•Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)
•A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent 🤍
(A=Archangel, my favorite song)

However, the singer has revealed that the baby’s name will now be, X Æ A-Xii, because in California you cannot put numbers inside a name.
SR-71, but yes

Grimes commented, “Roman numerals look better anyway.” According to California law, names on birth certificates can only use the 26 letters of the alphabet, although apostrophes and hyphens can be added.
